This is the former home of Louis Zamperini and houses artifacts. Unbroken, the movie, is coming out Christmas Day 2014. Each room is uniquely furnished with antiques. Enjoy the serene large front porch with rocking chairs and porch swing.
Enjoy the front porch with its peaceful view of humming birds and squirrels and beautiful landscaping. Eat breakfast on the porch or at the large, antique dining room table. 20 min. from LAX & Long Beach Airport. 20 minutes to the Queen Mary; 15 min. Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Mahattan Beach. 30minutes to Hollywood; Two hours to mountains. Great location!!
Torrance is ideally located. Walking distance to Old Downtown Torrance, a short drive to huge modern mall, movies, beaches, Hollywood, and Disneyland. Walking distance to two parks with jogging trail, tennis courts, etc.This is an oasis of beauty and old world charm in an old fashion neighborhood.
Public transportation is nearby, but a car is highly recommended.
There are two bedrooms each furnished with antiques. Each features a full size bed. The two rooms share a bathroom complete with claw and ball tub. Sleeps a total of four.
Sorry no pets and no smoking inside.
Bonnie Mae is a seventh-grade English teacher of over 20 years and still loves it. Don is a retired craftsman, who restored their 1912 California Craftsman bungalow to its original charm, and this couple supports historic preservation in their area known affectionately as Old Torrance. Bonnie Mae has authored a book, Old Torrance Olmsted Districts. Together they enjoy country music. Don's family were Iowa farmers and he loves the rodeo. They love the nearby beach, the neighborhood, the parks and convenience of having everything close to home. They enjoy dinner at at the many great restaurants, but one of their favorites is The Lazy Dog. Although they enjoy the theater, they spend many nights watching series on Netflix. Because their three grown children have all begun their adult lives elsewhere, they have rooms to share. For four years they hosted International students and will make you feel very welcomed and comfortable in this charming home. They love to visit new places, but feel that having guests stay in their home is a way of showing off Torrance and surrounding areas AND getting "visit" your hometown.
